How To Make Bacon Pizza

You can't go wrong with this bacon pizza that's loaded with three kinds of cheese, for a scrumptious baked dish.

Prep: 20 mins
Cook: 20 mins
Total: 40 mins


  • 1 lb pizza dough, prepared, at room temperature
  • all-purpose flour, for dusting
  • 4 slices bacon, chopped
  • 8 oz tomato sauce, (1 can)
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • ¼ tsp dried oregano
  • kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese , (about 4 ounces) shredded
  • 1 cup white cheddar cheese, (about 4 ounces) shredded
  • 1 tbsp parmesan cheese, grated


  1. Put a pizza stone or inverted baking sheet on the lowest oven rack and preheat to 475 degrees F for at least 15 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, roll out the dough into a 9-inch round on a lightly floured surface. Lightly dust a pizza peel or another inverted baking sheet with flour; lay the round of dough on top and set aside.

  3. Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring, for about 6 minutes until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Combine the tomato sauce, olive oil, garlic, and oregano in a medium bowl; season with salt and pepper.

  4. Slide the dough directly onto the hot stone or baking sheet and bake for about 7 minutes until lightly golden and puffy.

  5. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly, then carefully slice the crust in half horizontally with a serrated knife to make 2 thin crusts. Turn the crusts cut-side up. Spread with the sauce mixture, then top evenly with the mozzarella, cheddar, and bacon.

  6. Slide the pizzas back onto the hot stone or baking sheet; bake for about 8 more minutes until the cheese melts and the crust is golden. Sprinkle with parmesan.

  7. Serve and enjoy.
